World Mental Health Day - Tuesday 10th Oct 2023

This year’s global campaign theme is: “Mental health is a Universal human right” World Mental Health Day logo

This means everybody should receive quality mental health care and the human rights and well-being of people with a mental illness should be respected in all parts of the world.

A person with a mental health difficulty has the right to:

  1. be protected from known harms to mental health; a universal right which applies to the entire population, but especially the vulnerable including children, minorities and the displaced peoples.
  2. access quality and affordable care when a person is struggling with their mental health.
  3. freedom and dignity, including the right of choice.
